    If I remember correctly, v2.0 is when they went to the cross-threaded housings for the self-tightening props.

    I believe I've also seen a v3.0 of the tmotors advertised now, but I have no idea what's up with them. But, unless there's some new magic sauce in them, I'd put my money in to DJI's E300 motors instead if I were you. I've used those and the tmotors both (and even some other options) and the tmotors did not pay the efficiency or longevity dividends to justify the price difference.

    Isnt 2.0 newer? I cant find 3.0 anywhere, The only difference i see is that v2.0 have cw and ccw written on the nuttcaps, and they seem bigger, maybe not? But is there any difference in speed batterytime or anything else? Can you link me to the dji motors?

    Correct, the original version didn't have both CW and CCW threads, but that was changed when 2.0 came out, and I don't know of any other differences between the versions. I think they had realized they needed to do that update when DJI switched to self-tightening props last fall. I may be wrong about 3.0, but I could have sworn I saw a pic of some somewhere the other day with v3 stamped on the label.

    Here's one of the many places you can get the E300 motors I mentioned (most larger DJI dealers have them now, sold by the pair): http://1uas.com/DJI-E300-MOTORCWCCW

    Yes. I'm not aware of any current multirotor motors that aren't brushless.
